Coveyou Scenic Farm Market has been farmed by the Coveyou family for over 144 years. The farm transitioned from dairy to cereal grain, and under David Coveyou’s ownership, it offers certified organic produce, flowers, and other seasonal items for local and regional markets. David needed viable production year-round for staffing and profitability, which is why he chose geothermal to heat the greenhouse, provide cooling for the walk-in and reach-in coolers, and power a heat removal system that brings the holding tank down to 28°F. David said, “The thing I like most about our GeoComfort System is that it provides energy- and economic-efficiency that allows us as a farm to operate a higher profit margins.”
The foundation of Coveyou Scenic Farm Market’s greenhouse is insulated. This helps the geothermal system keep the ground in the greenhouse between 65°F - 70°F during cold Michigan winters cost-effectively. In addition to being energy-efficient with geothermal, Coveyou Scenic Farm Market has a 16 kW PV solar system to generate the power for the walk-in cooler, lighting, heating in the greenhouse, and the farm market electricity.
